The September issue of Ebony is going to slay the entire country. Featured on the cover are the fashion industry’s up and coming Black models who all look absolutely divine on the front cover.

Milan Dixon, Fatima Siad, Marquita Pring, Diandra Forrest, and Samantha Archibald are shown in the cover – in all their amazingness. But as you can see, the best part about this picture is the different shades of Black that are celebrated in the picture.
In a week where race, and particularly Blackness has been at the forefront of the news, this magazine cover could not have come at a more relevant time. It is often lost that Blackness is something that was not originally defined by Black people in America – but rather imposed. Since the legal emancipation of Black people, it has been a journey and is still a journey to redefine Blackness. But that’s enough academic talk for one day.
The point is this cover is slaying and every single one of the model’s featured here should have our attention. I did notice that none of the models had a Black-inspired hairdo but I will save that critique for another day. For now: YAAASSS just YAAASSS.
